Painting mostly in oils, capturing the edges of the land, be it, coastal or the rocky edges of Debyshire, Yorkshire and Cornwall. Painting are a mixture of bold strokes, impasto effects and subtle glazes.

My paintings are of places I know very well and visit over and over again, both literally and imaginatively. I am attracted to the ‘edges of the land’ including our fabulous and varied coastline as well as the rocky edges to be found throughout the British landscape.

My love of the sea stems from my childhood. I was born in Hartlepool on the North East coast and visited the little fishing village of Staithes often, as I still do today. The fishing cobles to be found on the North East coast serve as my models. They have a unique shape that reflects their Viking heritage, being clinker built with a rounded belly, flat stern and pointed bow. They are a challenge to paint but mine have all been pronounced sea worthy by the local fishermen. A great compliment indeed.

I find constant inspiration in the sea in all its moods and it is a subject to which I am invariably drawn, striving always to capture its movement and strength, which I find both fascinating and frightening.

I hope my viewers are able to uncover in my work some of the magic I feel in the places I am inspired to paint.

STUDIO: I have a working studio to view with works in progress and a gallery space where you will be able to see a selection of new works, sketches, drawings, prints and cards. You are welcome to have a go yourself in my studio.
